Suddenly all my silly thoughts disappear She comes to me softly with crackers and beer Winking and blinking and blowing in my ear Running away with my mind It's great to be in love I'm not really thinking of Leaving the straight life behind I'm just playing a game in my mind Do do do do do..... Once in a while, in my mind I go bumming Going to nowhere, with no worry of time Running along chasing after a train Humming a song in the sun and the rain Leaving the straight life behind I can just see me on a tropical island Riding the surf and drinking coconut wine Having me fun with golden girls in the sand Chasing the sun through an innocent land Leaving the straight life behind Suddenly all my silly thoughts disappear She comes to me softly with crackers and beer Winking and blinking and blowing in my ear Running away with my mind It's great to be in love I'm not really thinking of Leaving the straight life behind I'm just playing a game in my mind Do do do do do.....
